NEXTracker, a Flex company has collaborated with CdTe thin-film module manufacturer, First Solar to provide a patent-pending racking technology for First Solar's Series 6 (large-area) panel rollout this year.
Leading global single-axis solar tracker manufacturer NEXTracker has teamed with Turkey-based fixed mount manufacturer, Vergo Energy with an initial master supply agreement (MSA) totalling 775MW for PV power plant projects in Turkey and some of its neighbouring countries.
PV Tech caught up with Sujoy Ghosh, country head, India, for US-based thin-film PV manufacturer and project developer First Solar, in the firm’s Delhi office to discuss signs of developers in India engaging in new module-buying strategies, the country’s lukewarm relationship with trackers, and what India’s real power demand looks like.
Leading solar tracking company NEXTracker said it had achieved 100% on-time delivery for Enel Green Power’s 754MW PV power plant in Mexico, which has deployed its Gen2 ‘NX Horizon’ self-powered tracker system.
Adding energy storage gives solar developers and the industry in general the ability to “keep going”, while offering both lithium and flow battery systems covers a “wide-range of use cases”, NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar has said.
NEXTracker, a Flex company has launched ‘TrueCapture’, a first-of-its-kind intelligent, self-adjusting tracker control system for solar power plants. TrueCapture’s technology is designed to continuously refine the tracking algorithm of each individual solar array in response to existing site and weather conditions.
Solar PV tracking equipment provider Soltec announced that it is supplying 28MW of its SF Utility horizontal single-axis tracker to a PV project being constructed in the municipality of Estill, South Carolina.
